I’m not picking players from the Thursday night game (Atlanta-Bucs) in this post. Aside from that, here are my core daily fantasy picks for week 9 of the NFL.


A. Rodgers – $7,800
You almost have to play this guy at this point. I had him last week and I’ll have him next. Without a running game Rodgers has the green light with a great matchup at home vs the Colts.

R. Tannehill – $5,600
Finally playing well and has a big matchup vs the Jets who can’t stop anyone through the air. A week where there aren’t that many QBs that can score 30 (aside from thursday game), Tannehill might be a good low-owned gamble. Miami off of a bye.

Running Back

L. Bell – $7,700
This is a spot where I will attempt to differentiate my lineup, by picking a stud with a bad matchup. Aside from his ridiculous talent, Bell’s receptions make him a 20 point floor with a huge upside. Should be lower owned than he deserves this week at Baltimore.

M. Forte – $6,500
I’ve had Forte the last two weeks and I am going to keep on riding him, as long as the Jets are. I can’t see why they wouldn’t at the moment. Has a decent matchup vs an inconsistent Miami defense, and that low 10th OPRK should have people shopping elsewhere.

D. Sproles – $3,900
Good cheap option as it looks like he has taken over the #1 roll in Philadelphia. Should hit the 12+ fantasy points he needs to pay for himself with ease, and has an enormous upside.

D. Henry – $5,000
Already has had some big time production, and DeMarco Murray may be hobbled or out this Sunday. If that is the case keep your eye on Henry.

Wide Receiver

D. Adams – $4,900
Packers already were thin to none at RB last week, and now Knile Davis is gone too. Cobb and Montgomery are both questionable and didn’t play last week. Jordy seems to not be 100% still, and Rodgers loves this guy. At $5,900 you can’t miss.

K. Stills – $3,900
Jets are the worst in the league at the deep ball, and Miami has thrown it down-field to Stills more and more as the weeks have gone by. I like Parker as a sneak play for the same reasons.

Tight End

K. Rudolph – $4,000
Still a great price and gets a ton of targets. If he can find the end zone he will be huge. Matchup of the week vs Detroit should have him very high owned.

J. Doyle – $3,600
Tough OPRK will have him pretty low owned in what could be a shootout vs Green Bay. Big upside here.


Chiefs – $3,500
Home vs Jags.

Dolphins – $3,100
Off of a bye and home vs Fitzpatrick and the Jets.
